Hopefully a fish finder. I want one that can be portable and also has GPS. The big factor is power draw. I use them so much on flyins that recharging batteries in remote locations becomes an issue.
Show me fish down below, mapping on the side, hold all the other bells and whistles please.

I said mapping, what I actually meant was GPS not underwater mapping. I was corrected on that by a tech today.
I contacted Humminbird, Lawrence, and Garman this morning and posed the simple questions. No reply’s yet.
How many amps per hour do the units draw ?
What percentage does increased screen size bump that up?
What does going to more complex transducers change things if at all?

I'm actually going to be using it in saltwater. Sidescan and clear vue is useless to me here so I went with a medium chirp ducer. Going to use it for trolling and deep water jigging. The transducer I really wanted to use isn't compatible with the UHd 94sv so I had to settle for the one I got. Should work ok. If I go ice fishing on a vacation I might get the panoptic ducer.

I would really like to try Pan optics transducer
Glad these are compatible so I can

I am sure I will at some point
The transducer is pricey as you all know

So here we go..
I use 7.5ah batteries made by Dakota for remote fly in guiding. Chosen for weight concerns.
A Garmin striker 4 or similar will run 14hrs per charge. The striker 5 drops that number to 11 hours or 10 if you are using all the mapping functions. The same size units in Humminbird models were nearly the same except the Helix 5 with mapping and all will run around 7-8 hours to that battery charged.
I broke it down to the “4” models use about .4 amps per hour, the 5” screens .5 amps per hour and the 7” screens Nearly 1 amp per hour. Color screens, Bells and whistles add to the draw.
I did not search larger screens as I don’t use them.
By comparison I have an older Lawrence black and white 5”, no other bells and whistles on it to speak of and it runs 4 solid days of at least 8 hours per before the battery is down.

I ordered a new Ranger VS 1782 SC aluminum deep V last October. It came into the dealership in late March but the sales guy mistakenly ordered the 1682 instead of the 1782.
Long story but they re- ordered but it will have to be a 2023 build which goes into production on June 1. I am glad I didn't sell my 16 foot Lund. .

They did try to make me feel better so I'll give them that. Prices went up about 3500 22 to 23 model and they said they would honor the 22 price plus knock an additional 3 grand off. The fishfinder I upgraded to isn't an option on the new model so they bought one and said they would switch out the standard model with the upgraded hds live. It was a horrible screw up but I think they are doing alot more than many places to make it right.
